    All the pots need to be identical . I knew the stove with the widest pot would boil first. Watch hyram cook to learn how to do boil tests.

    Methanol has 10 000 BTU/lb, Ethanol has 12 500 BTU/lb so the individual stove really doesn't matter, the pot does.

    Nice video Brian, but don't sell your stove short! Yours took longer to prime because it had so much more fuel in it (2 or 3 times as much wasn't it?) and it would have boiled faster with that wider pot.
    One day I want to do a video comparing different pot boil times for the same stove, as well as different heights above the stove.
    Huh…I'm literally watching water boil. You'd think I'd get bored with it eventually, but I always watch the entire video, what a hiker-nerd. Anyway keep 'em coming!

    No reason to fake it?

    Aren't you making hundreds of thousands of dollars for each stove demonstration?

    you are laboring under a misconception about isopropel alcohal (RUBBING)  your problem may be your only getting 50 or 70%  you need 91-99% iso. wallmart does carry 91  i dont know in georgia but hear in CT.   cvs also carrys 91  , 99 is inposible to walkin and buy but canbe ordered its 49 per pt, hear 91 @WALLY W. IS ABOUT 4 PER PT.both heat faster than denatured as a puer form of same thing

    hey, Bryan. I don't know how I missed this video. lol you're the guy that got me started making these things a couple months ago. I've since made 15 or 16, just trying to figure out what works best. after some successes and failures, the best thing I can think to say is that the smaller cans have a smaller chamber in the inner wall and tend to pressurize faster. in full-sized soda cans, making the inner wall as big as you can get it (so that the chamber is smaller and pressurizes faster) and making the notches in the bottom of the inner wall relatively small helps it bloom faster and burn more efficiently. just adding my two cents but I hope it helps someone watching. I don't know how typical my results are but I figured i'd share my observation. as awlays, great video and thanks!

    Good review of lightweight stoves.  Also check out John Austin / Mini Bull Design for  well thought out stoves.

    did you deduct the 1+ mins that the other started with. if not your burner was around 5 mns.

    Kind of on the fence with mine. I did buy it from someone on youtube it works and it is light and all that. It dose have some usefulness don't think I would use it all the time if I was out for a week.

    If you subtract the time you waited for your homemade stove to bloom, it actually boiled water faster than the middle stove.

    Good test! Some nice stoves there. You got me wanting to do some stove videos…I haven't done any in a while.

    Hello bud, the maholo is a good stove and it works great, i have seen it used many times. The topsy turvy seems to work well as well, so the stoves work well. Many ways to make it faster and more efficient, in the pots you use. take care bro.

    You didn't eliminate all the variables you could have. You should have used the same pot on all three stoves.When bringing to a boil the same amount of water,the pot with the widest surface area will be more efficient.The pot on the left is more efficient than the two cups on the right

    I didn't realise you could put a pot straight on top of a burner like that? I thought they had to be on a stand of some sort otherwise the meths flame died. Am I missing something here?

    Good video, you've shown a good side by side comparison. All those stoves are different and act differently because of size and jet design. I wanna go play with my Trangia now. Thanks for sharing sir.
